You could work at managing your pain on your own and here are some resources that you may find helpful.
However, it can be easier to make changes with the help of a health coach to find out what works best for you and support you to make changes at your own pace and develop your confidence to maintain those changes and manage any set-backs.

Whether you decide to be supported by a health coach at this stage or not, you will find plenty of suggestions in the links below to help you.
At the Dorset Community Pain Service we believe in providing timely and effective care to support people already suffering from chronic pain and to prevent others from developing it.
Pacing for pain and fatigue is an information sheet which presents information about the technique separately for chronic pain and fatigue.
If you are in persistent (chronic) pain, this booklet is for you. It's a booklet about pain - not pain in general, but pain you feel, your pain- and how you manage it. Its aim is to help you get your life back to what you want it to be.
We are an NHS service, running pain management programmes throughout the year for patients from all over the UK. Our vision is to provide world-class pain management, good health outcomes and excellent patient experience, based on research, evidence and national and international standards.
This website can help you understand what persistent pain is and offers tips, advice and information to help you self-manage your condition and enjoy a better quality of life.
With the Pain Toolkit App you'll learn more about accepting pain so you can begin to move on, understanding the pain cycle and much more.
